And I'm so pleased that you are with us, we are honored to have you here. And I'm so pleased that we are returning to our campus this year for this commencement,” he said. “Most of all, I'm grateful this morning for the presence and power of the Lord Jesus Christ, who sustains all of us, right in the midst of the storm.”
